White Chocolate and Peppermint Popcorn

  • 16 oz. white chocolate (can use white chocolate baking morsels) or almond bark
  • 1 cup finely crushed (like sand) peppermints I crush my peppermints in my food processor. The mints may scratch the plastic.
  • 4 quarts popped popcorn (about 1/2 cup  corn kernels) I used an air popper to pop my corn, so it did not have salt. If you are using air popped corn, throw in a pinch of salt when you sprinkle in the crushed peppermints.

Slowly melt white chocolate or almond bark in the microwave or on stove-top with double boiler. Stir often to keep chocolate from burning.  Stir  1/2 cup crushed peppermints into the white chocolate.  Place popped corn into a large bowl.  Pour melted white chocolate and peppermint mixture over the popcorn. Gently stir to coat popcorn while sprinkling remaining crushed peppermints over the popcorn.

 Pour out onto parchment paper and allow coating to harden.

You can even drizzle with chocolate
